Silent Historiographers: Memories of Struggle, Scripts of Resistance
MetadataShow full item record
The main objective of this paper is to draw attention to the possibilities in testimonials to strengthen the decolonizing vein in postcolonial culture critique. With elements of oral history, autobiography, life story, the ethnography criss-crossing its contours, testimonials confound heenric boundaries. The heterogeneity of locations and ideologies undercut unitary perceptions of third work subjectivity. Finally, the negotiation of silence in the spaces of history compels a close and careful reading of the process of retrieving and recovering subaltern voices.
